Ten Points To Freshinenj SEE YOU | Faet8 ''_Dr. Combs 


A Creed For 
College Life 

Tuesday night, Mrs. Bushnell, 
Dean of women greeted the class 
of '46. 

Mrs Bushnell's topic was a 
liveable T'r e e d of ten points 
which would enable one to have 
a successful college life. She 
used the word creed as derived 
from credo meaning "I believe." 

Her first point was "I believe 
in good health." To protect this 
health, one should eat the right 
kind of food such as brown 
bread, milk, eggs, cheese, and 
lean meat. 

"I shall keep myself well 
groomed," Mrs. Bushnell gave 
for her second point, "Brush 
your hair every day, always 
have a clean skin, have well 
groomed nails, take a bath or 
shower every day," were some 

of the reguisites she gave for a 
well groomed person. 

"I shall put an additional em- 
phasis on etiquette," Mrs. Bush- 
nell recommended as the third 
point for this 1942-'43 creed. In 
the dining hall, in the auditori- 
um one should hav£ manners 
and be courteous to people. 

Artother important point was 
the knowledge of when to stop 
and when to go. One should 
know when to work and when 
to stop as well as to know when 
to plan and when to stop. 

A Mary Washington girl 
should have an ideal — wether 
it be some one who is living or 
not, a character — whatever it 
may be, as long as it is fine and 
good, an ideal is essential. 

"My mind shall not be ane- 
mic," Mrs. Bushnell presented 
as sixth point of creed. One 
should not . be superficial, and 
shallow. Have a splendid 
thought every day and use that 
35 per cent of the brain that 
psychologists claim that the 
average person uses. 

"I will be a girl just my own 
age and I will be a better citi- 
zen from now on," Mrs. Bushnell 
added as the seventh point. To 
do this one should meet obliga- 
tions of any sort. 

"Stand by your Flag", she 
commanded when giving the 
eighth point: "I will be an Ameri- 
can, I will believe in the Flag." 
To build character one must 
include Mrs. Bushnell's import- 
ant ninth point: "I shall tell tht 
truth." Control gossip and ne- 
ver take anything that does not 
belong to you. These are two 
important steps. 

In conclusion, Mrs. Bushnell 
Presented her tenth point: "Love 
your Bible." She went on to 
explain that it clarifies every- 
thing and shows how to do 
things in the finest way. 

For better college lives and 
future living as well — freshmen 
ar *d upperelassmen, here is your 
42-'43 creed. 

Seven Added 
To Faculty 

Replace Members 
In Service 

As we hurried through that reg- 
istration line Monday and Tues- 
day, we were confronted by a 
number of new faculty faces who 
have been placed permanently and 
temporarily here at Mary Wash- 
ington. They replace those who 
have gone into the armed service, 
civil service, research, war depart- 
ment work, or advanced study. 

Some of the faculty members in 
the service are: Dr. Clifford B. 
Mcintosh (Spanish), Mr. Bernard 
Fry (Library Science), Dr. Paul 
J. Ritter (Dramatics), Dr. Charles 
K. Martin (Education), Mr. L. S. 
Hiatt (Commerce), Mrs. Nannie 
Mae Williams (Registrar), Dr. Ste- 
wart Denslow (Spanish), Dr. Ar- 
thur L. Vogelback (English), and 
Mr. Donald R. Whitney (Mathe- 

We are very anxious to welcome 
to Mary Washington the following 
new members of the faculty. Later 
the Bullet will carry personal in- 
terviews with each and every one! 

Miss Jane Greenleaf Scran ton — 
Miss Scranton is a member of the 
Home Economics Department and 
replaces Miss Annabel Merrill. She 
is from Scranton, Penn. She re- 
ceived her B. S. degree from Hood 
College and did graduate work at 
Cornell University. She taught in 
Middletown, Conn, and Prince 
George's County, Md. Miss Scran- 
ton is a member of Pi Lambda 
Theta, an Honoriary Society in Ed- 
ucation at Cornell University. 

Mrs. Annette Mann Close — Mrs. 
Close from York, Penn. comes to 
Mary Washington to become our 
assistant dietitian. She got her B. 
S. degree at Simmons College, 
Boston in 1935 and did extension 
work in Education at the Univer- 
sity of Penn. in 1937-38. In 1938, 
she did extension work in Educa- 
tion and Dietetics at Columbia 
University. Her teaching exper- 
ience was gathered in the New 
York City Schools where she 

taught Home Economics and 

Mr. Donald S. Jones — Mr. Jones 
who replaces Mr. Weiss (on leave) 
comes from Ogunquit, Maine and 
will be a member of Dramatics De- 

Yep! One more registration 
day has become history at M. W. 
Poor old Monroe Hall fairly 
rocked on its foundation Mon- 
day when those umpteen hund- 
red freshmen began the trials 
and tribulations of finding the 
perfect class schedule. Hope no- 
body's disillusioned! All the 
arrows and posters looked like 
a subway station to say noth- 
ing of all the hustle and bustle 
of those who knew what they 
were doing. Mrs. Snyder stood 
at the head of an A No I receiv- 
ing line to tell the bewilded Red 
Frosh where to go from there. 

Dr. Hemphill and Dr. Moss 
might have been seen tearing 
I their hair out over some fresh- 
man's class conflicts while the 
newcomer stood by and wonder- 
ed what course she'd be taking 
when they got through. Dean 
Alvey seemed to be the little 
man who wasn't there. At least, 
everybody wanted him and no- 
body had him! Dr. Bauer had 
a grand time greeting the old 
students and vice versa. It must 
have fallen Miss Bell's lot to 
solve all miscellaneous problems. 
In case she's still trying to re- 
cuperate, we wish her a speedy 

It wasn't much different Tues- 
day when the upperclassmen 
went in. We couldn't help 
stumbling over each other for 
admiring the transformation of 
Monroe. It does look super and 
our hats are off to Mr. Schnel- 
lock for those beautiful murals. 
This was the first time we'd 
had a chance to see everybody 
together which accounts for 
some of us going in at nine 
o'clock and having to go back 
after lunch. Anyway, we're of- 
ficially registered now and 
ready for the grind. Let's get 
down to business, gals, there's 
a new year ahead of us!

When last fall Dr. Combs ex- 
pressed his intention of redec- 
orating Monroe Hall, the Mural 
students were given the chance 
to collaborate in the construc- 
tion of a scale model. This 
model, with miniature murals, 
was submitted and approved. 
The decorative scheme was bas- 
ed on State Seals, as well as 
State Flags. 

Some of the murals are now 
completed. In painting them, 
Mr. Schnellock had the eager 
collaboration of students and 
faculty. Even students from de- 
partments other than Art acquir- 
red themselves surprisingly well. 
Mr. Faulkner was busily engag- 
ed in painting the mural panel 
representing his own State. Mr. 
Graves labored on the huge Vir- 
ginia map, and let's not forget 
every door will be surmounted 
by an eagle sculptured and cast 
by Mr. McDermott. 

Perhaps it was too readily as- 
sumed that the softness of the 
colors would immediately be 
understood. Already it has been 
queried: "Why aren't the colors 
bright and cheerful?" This is 
easily answered: the murals were 
conceived essentially as a back- 
ground for — your bright and 
cheerful selves! Naturally, too, 
soft unobtrusive colors create a 
sense of airiness and space. 

Perhaps when this project is 
finished, Monroe Hall may yet 
rival its newer neighbors in 

Mr. Schnellock's efforts will 
be aided and abetted by the tal- 
ents and energies of the fourteen 
girls in the Mural Class. You 
will see them clambering over 
the scaffolds, beautifying the 
halls for you. 

It's fairly well known that 
Dr. Combs inaugurated this class 
to teach "art to everyone" by 
example. Those who have the 
interest and curiosity to observe 
the successive steps by which 
murals are made cannot fail to 
learn something about color re- 
lationships, design, proportion, 
and m,any other art elements. 

* Heard At First 

"Young ladies, when you re- 
turn to this campus you bring 
color and life to it and to the 
community. You represent the 
springtime of life, the song, the 
poetry, and the activity. I could 
go into some lengthy discourse 
pertaining to the same subject, 
but I feel that we are ready to 
eliminate the frills from con- 
versation and to be realistic in 
our c onversation." Thus wel- 
comed Dr. Combs Wedensday 
night at the first Convocation of 
the year. 

"The question is asked by stu- 
dents again and again, why go 
to college? The simple answer 
is, to secure an education. Ed- 
ucation is defined by some as 
a series of experiences to learn 
the ways of life," Dr. Combs 
said. It will make better citi- 
zens who will be of more ser- 
vice to their country. "There 
is no subject one can take which 
can be termed the most valu- 
ble," Dr. Combs declared. "It 
is the one which enables the in- 
dividual to get the most out of 

Then there are ever present 
mistaken ideas about books. A 
complete knowledge of books is 
necessary f o r an education. 
Books are not essential but only 
help to attain the goal, he re- 

Know Quality of Facts 
"The in ere knowledge of 
facts," said Dr. Combs, "is not 
all there is to it. One must 
know the quality of facts and 
their relationship to be well ed- 
ucated. Education, to have in- 
trinisic values, must be more 
than just a superficial know- 
ledge of facts." Dr. Combs used 
for examples the astronomer and 
the nature lover who knew only 
the names of the planets, stars, 
and respective trees and shrubs. 
They did not go beneath the sur- 
face to search out the quality 
of the facts. 

Another pertinent question 
that Dr. Combs asked was, "Do 
you know people?" Shakes- 
speare, one of the greatest schol- 
ars of all times could look into 
the hearts of his fellow-men and 
see inspiring romances. To 
know people one must know 
their strengths, emotions, talents 
and limitations. The difference 
between success and failure in 
life depends on the ability to 
know people well enough so 
that we can put ourselves in 
their places. This, of course, is 
physically impossible but spiri- 
tually it can be accomplished. 
Hence the "Golden Rule" and 
the familiar quotation, "Love 
thy neighbor as thyself." It is 
not the time," Dr. Combs re- 
marked, "to fall into petty cri- 
ticism of others. Before we cri- 
ticize, we must look into the 
standards of others and consi- 
der them." 

Therefore it is good to know 
books, things, people, and facts 
but it does not make for success 
if one does not know the quali- 
ties of those facts. 
Learn To Make Adjustments 
"The lack of adjustment to 
your environment," Dr. Combs 
declared, "makes for confusion. 
The incidents of your college life 
that are different make for ad- 
justment. Learn to make these

THE BULLET Published weekly by the Bullet Staff of Mary Washing-

This is the beginning of a new year for us all. Things are 
going to be changed somewhat here at college. Conditions 
will be different — certain articles are or will be lacking 
from the store counters — members of our faculty will be 
called to fill important positions in the government and to 
join our armed forces. 

In former years and moments of crisis, we have said and 
have believed with absolute honesty that everything would 
come out alright. That it always has and will continue to do 
so. We grant that's putting faith in the future which is a 
good thing, if not carried too far!!! 

To make everything come out fine and dandy, try putting 
a little individual effort behind the wheel and see how much 
better you feel. It won't be the "blood, sweat, toil, and tears" 
of a few leaders that will conquer this foe but the concentrat- 
ed "shoulder to the wheel" of all the people. 

We are in college and we are women! It isn't possible for 
us to work in a defense factory and to go to school too. But 
we can sell stamps and bonds — buy them too with that "coke 
money". We can knit — and knit like fury when the deadline 
is very soon! We can write letters to all our friends in the 
service, letters that will lift that cloud of homesickness! We 
can conserve electricity and heat as much as possible by do- 
ing — y° u know what! We can keep our campus clean by re- 
fusing to allow even a scrap of paper to flutter down to the 
side-walk from a careless hand. (This service, indirectly will 
help through the fact that labor is very hard to get and a 
job such as picking up paper can be efficiently handled by 
us.) We can help by being cheerful and not grumbling about 
the state of affairs — that's where our enemies can strike the 
hardest blows! We can cooperate to our last ounce of energy 
with our leaders — this is a lesson which must be learned by 
all, including the leaders and which, if practiced, brings un- 
dreamed of results. 

Therefore it is easy to see what we can do. It takes united 
effort and Mary Washington can be proud of the fact that 
on this campus are the basic requirements for such. 

Bull S 


All students wishing to ex- 
press their opinions on campus 
affairs are asked to address 
their articles to the Bull Session 
Column. These letters must be 
signed by the writer but the 
name will not be published on 


One of the many persons who answered the call for the 
war effort was Kitty Murphy, editor-in-chief of the BULLET 
for this coming year. She writes that she is unable to re- 
turn and that she is working in a defense plant in Conn., 
"turning out anti-aircraft guns with the rapidity of a demon." 

Kitty will long be remembered by those who knew her 
here at M.W.C. Her sparkling wit and sometimes sarcastic 
tongue made her a well known figure on the campus. (Re- 
member that editorial on the opera of last year????) 

The staff will carry on with a new editor-in-chief but will 
remember her and will wish that she were back!! 

She has promised to continue writing for the BULLET 
and is, to our knowledge, the first official northern cores- 
pondent for the BULLET. 

Good Luck Kitty, and keep that assembly line rolling!!! 

* * * 

Nancye Harper, Circulation Manager for this coming year, 
also wrote that she would be unable to return this year. 
However, she plans to come back next year. She has a posi- 
tion for the winter and we wish her all the success with it. 


The staff takes this opportunity to say "Happy New year" 
to you — all you students — new or old. We are counting on 
you to take an interest in your paper and support us to the 
Nth degree. If there is anything you want to say — please 
write it down and tell us. The BULLET covers the entire 
campus from convocation to the good ole' gab session.

As Deadline For 
Mailing Christmas 
Parcels Overseas 

November 1 has been set, by an 
agreement formulated by the War, 
Navy and Post Office Depart- 
ments, as the deadline for mailing 
Christmas parcels overseas. 

The present restriction upon 
overseas parcel post of 11 pounds 
weight, 18 inches length and 42 
inches combined length and girth 
(see Post Master General's Or- 
ders No. 17471 and 17559) will not 
be changed for the present, but the 
public is urged voluntarily to ob- 
serve the following limitations: 
volume should not exceed that of 
an ordinary shoebox, and weight 
should not exceed 6 pounds. 

Mail officials in the Navy De- 
partment have pointed out that 
packaging should be sturdy, to 
withstand handling and piling. The 
address must be complete in all 
respects and return address given, 
the same regulations in regard to 
addresses applying to parcel post 
as to letters. 

Articles should be easily port- 
able and useful in any climate. 
Food should not be sent; clothing 
should not be sent unless it has 
been specifically requested. 

All mail matter remains sub- 
ject to censorship.

y . W. Sponsors Annual Kid Party; 
Entertainment In Gym Tonight 


Tonight is a large evening in* 
the life of every freshman. At ' 
8 p. m. there will assemble the 
current version of "what the 
well-dressed three-year-old will 
wear" as the Y-sponsored Kid 
party gets under way in the big

Cabinet Starts 
Year With Retreat 

The Y. W. C. A. Cabinet of 
Mary Washington College return- 
ed to the campus Friday, Septem- 
ber 18, for its first Pre-school Re- 
treat, planning the Y program for 
Orientation Week and the coming 
school session. Twenty-three of the 
total twenty-seven cabinet mem- 
bers arrived in Fredericksburg 
early for the Retreat, which was 
held at the Athletic Association 
cabin, on the campus. 

President Peggy Moran, of 
Warren, Ohio, was in charge of 
the week-end meeting. On hand 
were students from nine states 
and the District of Columbia, rep- 
resenting the Sophomore, Junior, 
and Senior classes. 

The cabinet members' most im- 
portant job this week was greet- 
ing the incoming freshman, more 
than 600 of them, who began ar- 
riving Sunday for registration 
Monday. These students have a 
full Orientation program, arrang- 
ed by the college administration, 
the Student Council, and the Y. 
W. C. A. 

On Monday night the Y gave 
a Welcome Party at the outdoor 
swimming pool for all new stud- 
ents. Amid moonlight and candle- 
light, the group sang the old fam- 
iliar songs and devoured gallons 
and dozens of the traditional cider 
and doughnuts. Y girls also have 
a finger in the Freshman Train- 
ing, to be held next week, and they 
have arranged the Kid Party to- 
night and the meetings of religious 
groups tomorrow night.

Studies Plus Fun 
Equal Summer School 

The 622 students who spent 
their summer (or a good part of 
it!) at Mary Washington this sum- 
mer hailed from 24 states, the Dis- 
trict of Columbia, and Puerto 
Rico. Virginia led the states with 
a representation of 431. 

The girls came from as far 
north as Vermont (3), as far south 
as Puerto Rico (13), and as far 
west as New Mexico (3). 

Moonlight swims, picnic and 
game nights, formal reception and 
dances, costume dances, "racquet 
nights", splash parties, movies, 
band concerts, breakfast rides 
(horse back), tennis and tours 
around historic Fredericksburg 
were all a part of the menu and 
one could pick or choose. 

The campus itself was a differ- 
ent place during the summer 
months with fewer girls and fac- 
ulty. However all the dormitories 
were open except Frances Willard 
and Cornell.

adjustments gracefully and 
readily today." 

The second point to this state- 
ment was adjust your environ- 
ment to yourself. We, as human 
beings, have done much toward 
that goal with bridges, stoves, 

automobiles, and similar engi- 
neering feats. 

The third and last point was 
to be able to re-adjust yourself 
to the changing conditions of 
your environment. When one 
thinks of the changes that are 
coming, it is appalling. Our pet- 
ty changes on the campus are 
not to be compared with the 
sacrifices our men in the armed 
forces are making even now. 
You students are fortunate to 
face the greatest challenge ever 
put before a group and you will 
face it in the coming hours. It 
carls for loyalty, courage, sacri- 
fice, cooperation, love, tolerance, 
good sportmanship, apprecia- 
tion, and freedom from petti- 
ness and littleness. These qua- 
lities," remarked Dr. Combs, 
"never meant much before but 
now we must dust them off! 
between freedom and slavery. 
Their use will be the difference 

"President Wilson said during 
the World War I, "Keep the 
roads to the school house open." 
.There will be a great need for 
education when this is over and 
even a greater need for leaders."

pings, one written in March, 
1942 and the other in Septem- 

Sale of Bonds, 
Stamps Buys 
Machine Guns 

For the first time in the his- 
tory of Mary Washington, Stu- 
dent Government officiated at 

Summer School. Many and 
varied projects for defense and 
entertainment were given un- 
der the direction of Council a* 
side from its regular duties of 
keeping "law and order." 

Some of the highlights of 
summer program sponsored by 
this group were: the bathing 
beauty contest, which was pro- 
bably the most enjoyable of all. 
Fifty-two dollars was raised for 
the Red Cross War Fund in Fred- 
ericksburg. Another project a- 
long this line was the sale of 
war stamps and bonds at the 
booth in front of the College 
Shoppe. During that time two 
sub-machine guns valued at one 
(hundred eighty-four dollars 
were purchased, leaving a bal- 
lance of forty dollars. Another 
i great fun-provoking project was 
the newly-introduced "Faculty 
Day." All during the day, stu- 
dents brought the members of 
the faculty, candy, cokes, 
pillows to sit on, alarm clocks 
to end the prof's "ever so often" 
trips to the hall, and various 
things to play with while the 
students studied. The highlight 
of this occasion was the Student 
Government Dance for the fac- 
ulty in the little gym. The floor- 
show at the dance was a farce on 
Student Council given by the 
council members. The Council 
presided over the meeting with 
mock sterness, in keeping with 
the popular opinion of the stu- 
dent body. Various faculty mem- 
bers were called before Council 
for such misdemeanors as walk- 
ing on the grass, night riding, and 
"doodling" on the walls. Fac- 
ulty Day proved to be such a

"America Seems Wonderland 
to Traveler from War-Torn 
Europe" and the latter was an 
announcement by Donald Nel- 
son. It said that before the year 
is over, we will have to accept 
lower standards of living. 

In conclusion, Dr. Combs said, 
"Make everyday in your college 
life count. Until your country 
calls you, your job is here." 

great success that it may be- 
come an annual affair. 

On the fourth of JUty, council 
had a patriotic program at the 
ampitheater. Singing and fire- 
works were the main attractions. 

Members and officers of Stu- 
dent Council took a well-earn- 
ed rest at the end of such an 
eventful summer of work by 
spending the day at Westmore- 
land Park swimming and eating 
together. ,

Because of the splendid co- 
operation of the Fredericksburg

advertise in THE BULLET, we 
are able to have an eight page

rather short-handed because of 
the fact that they have not been 
fully organized as yet and was 
forced to use a good deal of filler 
material. This material, we hope, 
you will find interesting. Plans 
are being made to bring the de- 
partments of the College closer 
to you by a series of articles 
which will begin next week.

Kaye Joins 

Will Fill Wednesday 
Night Date During 
Entire 26-Week Series 

There's no magic -attached to 
it, but Sammy Kaye has be- 
come a musical magician. 

Kaye, who will bring his 
"Swing and Sway" orchestra to 
"The Victory Parade of Spot- 
light Bands" over the Blue Net- 
work Wednesday night at 9:30 
EWT from Milwaukee, Wise, has 
turned his baton into a magical 
wand . . . and proves it every 
Sunday afternoon. His Wednes- 
day night spot, which he will fill 
throughout the 26-week series, 
will be played especially for war 
workers in Milwaukee. 

Practically every night Sammy 
and his orchestra play dance 
rhythms, but on Sunday after- 
noons they turn into a concert 
group. They do it especially for 
their "Sunday Serenade." 

' '« ^ree Big Features 

Simple home tunes, the read- 
ing of homespun poetry by Maes- 
tro Kaye, and the singing of be- 
loved ballads by the glee club 
are the three features of the 

"People still love those tunes 
that haunt you in the dead of 
the night. The tunes that good 
friends sing when they get to- 
gether," Kaye says, "and we 
merely want to play them in the 
manner we all love. 

"The 'Serenade' is especially 
pleasing to the boys in the Arm- 
ed forces. We get letters from 
boys in the service all over the 

"The Marines in Iceland have 
written and told us that when 
the 'Serenade' is on the air bar- 
racks are as quiet as a church. 
They write the music means 
home to them. 

"Taps" in Cleveland 

"One fellow wrote and told us 
that he had made a pact with his 
girl and family before leaving 
for duty overseas. According to 
the pact they all sit and listen to 
the 'Serenade' and think of each 
other. He wrote that it made him 
feel closer to his loved ones 
knowing they were listening to 
the program. 

"But it isn't only the letters 
from the boys in the service that 
make you feel you are doing 
something. People right at home 
make you feel the same way. 

"The greatest thing that ever 
happened to us was right in 
Cleveland," recalls Sammy. "We 
had been asked by the Cleveland 
War Bond Committee to read a 
poem entitled 'Taps' over the 
'Serenade' in order to help the 
campaign. We did, and then 
found out that the poem had been 
written by a Cleveland woman 
whose son was listed among the 
missing at Corregidor." 

African Auto Law- 
Owners of private cars in one 
South African town are compelled 
to take out "exemption certifi- 
cates," costing $1.25, before they 
can either drive with their wives 
as passengers or be themselves 
driven by a chauffeur, as both 
these actions are regarded as of- 
fenses against the auto transport 

Kyser Plays 
For Workers 

Spotlights Program 
Rolls To California 
Aircraft Plant 
For Broadcast 

And those bombers will come 
rolling along . . . this time set 
to music. 

At the request of the War Pro- 
duction Board, "The Victory Pa- 
rade of Spotlight Bands" Thurs- 
day night played to the men and 
women of Burbank, Calif., who 
toil in the large plants of the 
Lockheed Aircraft Company 
bringing with it . . . Kay Kyser. 

Kay, who has played before 
thousands of young Americans 
in the fighting forces of the na- 
tion, made his first broadcast 
from a war industry location. 
The program was heard at 9:30, 
EWT, over the Blue Network. 

Kyser and his orchestra have 
made personal appearances in 
Army, Navy, Marine and Coast 
Guard bases from the tip of Flor- 
ida to Puget Sound. And to put 
it in his own words, "I've learn- 
ed plenty." 

Spirit Impressive 

"The spirit of the camps in 
which we have appeared," Kyser 
says, "hits you like a ton of 
bricks. The interest the officers 
have in their men and the con- 
cern over their welfare is appar- 
ent everywhere. And the under- 
standing attitude of the men to- 
ward their superiors is some- 
thing wonderful." 

But it is the little humorous 
things that happen at the bases 
. . . things that only can happen 
in a nation where men are free 
. . . that Kay likes to recall. 

Like the time Kay was making 
the rounds with the officer of 
the day at the San Diego Naval 
Training Station. 

A recruit stopped the two in- 
spectors with the challenge, 
"Halt! Who goes there?" 

The officer replied, "The sen- 
ior officer of the watch" — then 

waited for the guard's response. 

"I can't stand here all night", 
the officer finally said sharpiy. 

"You'll stand there 'til I think 
what next to ask you," the un- 
abashed recruit said. 

Giant's Skeleton 

A skeleton of a man seven feet

Honey Has Many Uses 

Only about half the honey crop 
in this country gets to the table as

ice cream and soft drinks.

bestos deposits on the North Am- 
erican continent lie 65 miles south 
of Quebec City, in the Eastern 
Township of Quebec province. 

Pluto Four Billion Miles Away 

Astronomical computations show 
that the planet Pluto, discovered 
in 1930, is 4,400,000,000 miles from 
the earth, about 30 times farther 
away than Mercury. 

Harry James 
In Top Spot 

Popular Trumpeter 
Revived Spotlight 
Bands Series From 
Marine Base At 
Parris Island 

Recipe for success — circus 
training, a trumpet a couple of 
good lungs and deep love for 

The above aptly describes Har- 
ry James, America's new sensa- 
tion in the music world. 

James, whose trumpet is fa- 
miliar to every music lover in 
the country . . . both swing and 
classic, took his combination to 
the air lanes of the Blue Net- 
work Monday night when he 
played the initial program of 
"The Victory Parade of Spotlight 
Bands." He played from the Ma- 
rine base at Parris Island, S. C, 
at 9:30 EWT. 

Circus training was the first 
thing James received for his suc- 
cess story. He was born on a 
circus lot. His parents were as- 
sociated with the Mighty Haag 
Circus at the time. 

Son Versus Father 

Though ho was given normal 
schooling, Harry's love was the 
circus and it wasn't long before 
he was an entertainer. When the 
family joined the Christy Broth- 
ers Circus, young Harry, who 
had been taught to play the 
drums and the trumpet, became 
a full-fledged bandsman. 

Shortly after, he was leading 
the No. 2 band of the circus, and 
developing the lungs now needed 
for his sensational solos. It was 
a well-known fact about the cir- 
cus grounds that th<f No. 1 band, 
which was led by Harry's father, 
would not play when the No. 2 
band was in action. Maybe Pere 
James didn't want to make" his 
offspring look badly, but maybe 
he was afraid of a comparison. 

The love for music, Harry's 
third requirement, is clearly 
shown that in the 28-piece or- 
chestra now under the James ba- 
ton . . . there are, of all things,

Heidt Gets Hot 
With New Styles 

Horace Heidt and his co-lead- 
er, Frankie Carle, have definite 
ideas about dance music . . . but 
they do not hesitate to make 

The "Musical Knights" still 
have their "sweet" characteristics 
but a load of "get up and swing" 
has been added since Carle took 
a hand in the arrangements. 

Heidt and his new associate 
introduced their changed style 
from Passaic, N. J., Wednesday 
night, when they appeared on 
"The Victory Parade of Spotlight 
Bands" in a bow to the workers 
at the Bendix Aviation plant 
there. The program was carried 
by the Blue Network starting at 
9:30 EWT. 

"America's greatest dance 
band" is the title being sought 
by the revived unit. Gone is the 
electric guitar. In its place is a 
more lively Spanish guitar. Five 
saxaphones are blended instead 
of four. The trombone section 
has been doubled to four and 
three trumpets also have grown 
to four. 

"If you like it sweet, if you 
like it hot . . . hear Heidt" is the 
new slogan.

A. A.EntertainsFrosh 
At Play Day 

Greetings to you from the* 
Athletic association! 

We are glad to see you all 
back and are especially glad 
to welcome the freshmen to M. 
W. C. 

Tuesday afternoon the "ener- 
getic ones" poured out of Wil- 
lard down to the athletic field 
and met the officials of A. A. 
Claire Moore, President, clad 
in her yellow gym suit, wel- 
comed them with the assistance 
of her council. 

Carolyn McPhail began the 
demonstrations with an explan- 
ation of the various golf techni- 
ques, and swung hor clubs with 
a professional air. There are al- 
ways full golf classes here on 
the hill, and it has proved to 
be' quite a popular fall and spr- 
ing sport. 

Marjorie Hudson, president of 
the Hoof Prints Club, accom- 
panied by Betty Smith and Mar- 
tha Holloway, gave a demonstra- 
tion of riding. Mounted on three 
of Oak Hill Stable's steeds they 
walked, trotted, and cantered. 
The purpose of the Cavalry Unit 
was explained also to the new 

Teams were formed for volley 
ball. Alter playing for half an 
hour, volley ball gave way to 
hockey. A match was played 
between the upper classmen and 
the new girls. This was not an 
exhibition match but was only 
played for the enjoyment of the 
players and spectators. . 

By this time everyone was 
"well nigh dry" so all struggled 
up the hill to the cabin with an 
eye opened for refreshments. 
(Incidently, you can spend a 
week-end there in a group — 
and is it fun?!.!) Behind the 
cabin soft drinks and cookies 
were served. Everyone gathered 
around in little groups to dis- 
cuss the various sports offered 
at Mary Washington and the 
class teams. (There will be more 
about them later!) 

Just remember to join the At- 
hletic Association when the 
great day comes! No dues but 
loads of fun!

Mary Washington College was 
well represented in the Horse 
Show held at Prospect Hill, Aug- 
ust 22, 1942. The students scored 
a landslide when they scored first, 
second, and third in the Ladies 
Class: Marjorie Hudson, first; 
Susan Wilson, second; and Betty 
Smith, third. 

The Open Cup Class was won by 
Marjorie Hudson. Susan Wilson 
was second in this event. The class 
for Ladies and Gentlemen riding as 
a pair was won by Susan Wilson 
and Russell Walther. 

The highlight of the day for the 
Mary Washington students was 
when Marjorie Hudson on Batche-

Picture Story of V. S. Flag 





PRE-INDEPENDENCE FLAGS— Depicted above are banners 
carried by American patriots when they first took up arms in 1775. 
At the left is the blue flag with its white crescent which was nailed 
to the staff .at Fort Moultrie by Sergeant Jasper. In the center is 
the Rattlesnake Flag of the Virginia minute men at Culpeper. At 
the right is one of the New England pine tree flags. 


This is the first Stars and 
Stripes. The Continental Con- 
gress on June 14, 1777, resolved: 
"That the thirteen United States 
be thirteen stripes, red and white; 
that the Union be thirteen stars, 
v* ite in a blue field, representing 
a new constellation." According 
to legend the five-pointed stars 
were designed by Mrs. Betsy Ross. 


With the admission of Vermont 
and Kentucky to the Unjpn two, 
stars and two stripes we»v - auea 
to the flag following an Act of 
Congress in 1794. It was a flag 
of 16 stars and 15 stripes over Ft. 
McHenry that inspired # Francis 
Scott Key to write "The Star- 
Spangled Banner." Congress in 
1818 restored the original number 
of stripes.
